in Bedale in Headingley

The Ashes cricket kicked off today and there’s still chance to get tickets for the Headingley test starting on 6th July, with tickets starting from just £5. Why not celebrate by entering this competition for the chance to win a Gray-Nicolls cricket bat signed by Official Ambassador, Harry Brook.

Father’s Day

It’s Father’s Day on Sunday 18th June in the UK, and there’s still time to book a getaway in beautiful Yorkshire.

For the outdoorsy action heroes, there’s mountain biking in Dalby Forest – accommodation available at High Dalby House (includes cooked breakfast), Heron Cottage (ground floor with pizza oven) and Kingfisher Cottage (also ground floor with pizza oven). There’s also gorge walking at How Stean Gorge – lodges with hot tubs available.

For those who fancy a more sedate pace, why not cruise along the waterways, with canal boats which sleep up to 8. Take in the landscape and relax – no licence required.


Tennis fans can trace the history of one of the early sport’s pioneers – John Thorneycroft Hartley, who shuttled between Thirsk Station and the tournament to win consecutive titles.


There are a host of great shows taking place on the Saturday night before Father’s Day – check out this selection:

If you enjoy going to live shows with the family, why not enter for the chance to win tickets to Duggee Live? Hey Duggee The Live Theatre Show was named Best Family Show at the 2023 Olivier Awards. ‘A joyous piece of family entertainment’ – Time Out Magazine.
